Help plan my summer The situation: To get my 2 year degree in community college for visual arts/web development I need to take classes this summer. 2 classes in the evening. That will make work tough this summer. Last summer, I made 4k by working construction from June through August. It goes Monday through Friday and optional Saturdays from 6:30am to 3pm. So a construction filled summer this summer would more than double my savings which will work nice because when I have to pay my one and only expense (car insurance) then I will actually have 6.5k left over. That works out nicely for the future if I get an appartment in the next 2-3 years. This also means being dead tired in my two night classes this summer. I believe it will be Monday Wednesday 5:30-9 or something like that. I've never taken on this much of a load before, but the classes arn't that hard. My other option would be to just do a part time job. 3 nights a week on the weekends or something like that. But the money I make won't be half the money I make in construction. The wage is $5 more in construction than it was in food service. The hours are also alot more in construction. 40 hours compared to 20 hours a week. I will however be well rested and should dominate in class and when I play slowpitch softball. I am playing slowpitch softball either way. Spring and Summer. I need to have SOME fun in my life. The big question: So the big question is which type of job do I take? Construction for a jam packed and tiring schedule but twice as much money, or a part time fast food or movie theatre type job for an easy schedule? Summer A: Food service or move theatre job. Lots of free time, small amount of income, maybe 1500-2000. Lots of free time to work out and play with the pooch. Won't be sore or too tired to dominate in slowpitch softball. Won't have to breathe dust on the site. Summer B: Construction, $4k. Plenty of spending money. Weekends completely off. Overworked, a little tired. Might not have very good concentration in classes. However, these classes are very easy. Might not work out or get excercise due to exhaustion. Girlfriend will be slightly unhappy. Still time for slowpitch softball on the weekends or Tue/Thursday.
